Oklahoma officers fatally shoot man after slow-speed pursuit

WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the fatal shooting of a man by a law enforcement officer in western Oklahoma.

The OSBI said Monday that Weatherford police asked for assistance in last week’s shooting death of 39-year-old Colby Archer following a slow-speed chase.

The OSBI says Archer led Weatherford and state police on the chase after he pulled a gun on a person outside a business.

The OSBI says Archer eventually stopped and began shooting at officers Friday, who returned fire and killed him.

The agency says a state trooper suffered a minor, undisclosed injury and was treated at a local hospital.
